That colour is delicious!  I should get more into green, but my obsession with red/maroon/hot pink always wins.  Thanks for the pattern - I have an abundance of dk yarn in my stash, and not enough patterns to go with it.  Will add it to the pile...

Is that the exact same green as your first?  By the way, what happened with your Knitty submission of the other one?

Hi Ohmystars,

This is my first ever posting to this forum!  I have been a browser for a month now.  I absolutely LOVE your design, and thank you so much for sharing your pattern with everyone.   As I was trying it yesterday, I found myself a bit confused with your pattern since I AM a beginner knitter.  I was wondering if you could clarify some things for me.....

1) After doing 6 rows of 2X2 ribbing, Next row "k2, work 2 lace patt reps, k2".  What does "Work 2 lace patt reps" mean when the lace pattern consists of 4 rows? 

2) In your lace pattern, row 3 says, "s3k", I wasn't sure what the meant and I couldn't find the abbreviation anywhere at all.

Any help would be apppreciated.

Thanks,
lumpui  Lips sealed

1. this just means you're working the pattern twice each row - makes sense as it fits twice into each row

2. s3k is like ssk but you slip 3 sts and knit them together

I'm stuck on the same bit Lumpui, have you managed to work it out. I've followed the instructions but I left with four stitches at the end so I must be doing something wrong. I take it that you knit 2, then follow the instructions for row 3 (so I then did k1, k3tog, yo,k1 4 times, s3k,k1 then end with k2. I've just thought does the yo,k1 count as five because you do one and then you repeat 4 times? Help.

Hi Sarah,

Unfortunately, I am also running into the exact same problem.   Hopefully, someone can enlighten us.
